Windows Phone 7 and GPS Navigation Software

Hi!

I'm totally new to Windows Phone 7 and I must decide if this platform is suitable for the development of my application. Is there any navigation software available, like TomTom Navigator? My goal is to have a system in which I can plan a route on a desktop PC and then transfer it on the phone, so that is will be immediately available when the navigation software starts. Is it possible and, in this case, which sofware must I use?

Thanks in advance.

I was quite surprised not to find any proper GPS software for WinPhone7! I travel quite a bit to meet customers etc and I really hate to drag a separate GPS device to be able to navigate to my destination. I couldn't even dream of going with a phone without a proper navigation software.

For me this is much bigger showstopper for going with Windows Phone than any copy/paste -functionality, what's the point of the whole gps module if you can use it with Bing only,

I have an HTC Mozart with turn by turn navigation provided by Orange and this has shown to be unreliable (cannot connect issues!) there definitely needs to be a solution for this and a quick one, I too am having to use my old WM6.1 phone for this, come on guys
